I have a problem with anyone who plays the "race" card in order to avoid scrutiny and, as far as I am concerned, if anyone wants to come and live and work in our country then, they have to abide by our rules and laws. Plain and simple and "race", "ethnicity" or "religion" shouldn't come into it.
Furthermore, I also believe that after a succesful prosecution and sentence, foreign offenders should then be removed from the country and to hell with the "human rights" of their families/dependents. If it's that big an issue then, they can go with the offender.
As an extra, I also believe that the people who "shelter" these offenders from prosecution should also be removed from office on the grounds that they cannot be trusted to treat all people equally.
As for Tommy Robertson, I believe that he has been a bit of an idiot in giving the "authorities" (the people who act in OUR name and on OUR behalf but DO NOT have to answer to any of us) an opportunity to get at him and the sentence of 10 months was excessive. Clearly designed to set an "example" to others who may be inclined to challenge the "system".
